. . . where the 1970s live forever!

Bobby Murcer smashed two homers and Mel Stottlemyre pitched a four-hitter as the Yankees beat the Senators, 4-0, handing Denny McLain his ninth straight defeat and 14th of the season. With this loss to the Yankees, McLain had the dubious distinction of completing the cycle of defeats by every club. [The Sporting News]
